    Hi everyone….I have not been on the forum for some time do to a lot of “life” changes e.g new baby etc; anyway been catching up on some good info from this forum and trying to learn more. I have been getting the desire to really find a solid project car and have been browsing the local craigslist ads - nothing really has caught my attention. I really want a project car that I can do right and maybe get my two oldest kids involved in a little (within reason). Something preferable close to as possible to stock and that has not been molested; decent running condition with a solid body is preferred. Nothing with a lot of rot (beyond by comfort zone) but if a few welded patch panels are needed than that is fine. I really want to apply the skills I learned from working in a body shop ~10 yrs ago (although outdated) with what solid knowledge I have learned in from this forum and other sources. Looking at 2nd gen Camaros and Trans ams but open to something else if the right project comes along. Wanting to keep the price down so I can put the $ into my labor and having the fun and satisfaction of doing the work myself so recent restos and mint originals are not what I are looking for. What I am finding is either cars that have had high dollar restos or hacked up cars which are overpriced IMO. Maybe I have been away too long and this is the new reality. Anyway if anyone comes across something of interest pls feel free to either post or PM me it would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Rare 1980 Camaro RS

    I have an Blue with blue interior 80 RS T-Top car that has been stored on a concrete drive next to my house for the past 20 years. It is a project car all metal absolutely no rust. Some NOS parts. No engine or trans. My wife actually bought the car in 1983 we sold it in 1986 and I bought it back the same car in 1994 for her wedding anniversary. It's been 20 years now I haven't finished it so I found her another one that had 60k on it and bought that one for our 30th anniversary. I was thinking $1500 would take it. I live in Cincinnati Ohio
